Literally this recipe is so quick and easy to make and is perfect for a meatless Monday or taco Tuesday! The crunch of the hard shell taco stuffed with the meaty, spicy black bean mixture paired with the sweetness of the corn and topped with the fresh tangy creamy slaw make your tastebuds go haywire!.
The tangy, creamy slaw is the perfect topping to any taco, burger or sandwich! It’s got the creaminess without the mayo, sour cream and fat. The greek yogurt is mild in flavor and similar in consistency to sour cream but without the fat! The addition of the zest of the lime and freshness of the cilantro make this slaw really pop with flavor. And to top it off the Tajin just adds that perfect amount of spice and peppery tang to the slaw! Side note the Tajin is AMAZING on the rim of a margarita a must try!
Black Bean, Corn, Jalapeño Tacos With a Creamy Cilantro Lime Slaw
- Sharp knife
- Large Bowl
- Medium Bowl
- Sauce Pan
- 1 can (15 oz) black beans drained and rinsed
- 1 cup cooked corn (I used a frozen corn microwavable bag)

Greek yogurt cilantro lime slaw recipe
- 3 cups cole slaw mix or shredded cabbage
- 7 oz greek yogurt I used Fage 2%
- 1/4 cup lime, freshly squeezed (approx. 1 Lime)
- 3 tbsp cilantro chopped
- 1/2 tsp Tajin seasoning Link to product in notes
- In a medium bowl, add in greek yogurt, cilantro, Tajin & lime mixing until well blended.
- Place the cole slaw mix in a large bowl. Add the sauce to the coleslaw and toss until the mixture is evenly combined. Set aside until tacos are ready.
- In a medium saucepan add 1 tbsp olive oil. Add in red onion and jalapeno and saute for 2 minutes over medium heat stirring frequently. Next add in corn & black beans cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until hot.
- Add your blackbean & corn mixture to your hard corn shells. (I like to warm them for 20 secs before serving as they are less likely to break). Top your tacos with the slaw and if you want an extra kick add your favorite hot sauce or salsa. Now, this calls for a marg or two!
